Abuja, FCT – Sani Uba, the governor of Kaduna State, has denied rumors linking him to his opposition to Nasir E-Rufai’s candidacy for a ministerial position.

Ironically, the ex-governor of Kaduna was not approved along with two other nominees for minister whose screening was suspended because of a number of petitions filed against them.

How El-Rufai was upset about losing his ministerial position

El-Rufai’s clearance was suspended as a result of many security reports against the former governor of Kaduna.
El-Rufai told President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in a private meeting that he was no longer interested in serving in his cabinet, according to a subsequent story, which was corroborated by other sources.

Additionally, it was rumored that El-Rufai suggested that Jafaru Sani, a former commissioner, take his place. This recommendation, according to rumors, was rejected by Governor Uba because of Sani’s allegiance to El-Rufai, The Cable said.

While reacting to the allegation, Governor Uba said:

“The only thing that is true in the story is that I met with the president. Every other thing is false and a conjecture to create friction between me and Mallam (el-Rufai)

“I went to see the president specifically because I was worried by the turn of events. I believe both of them mean well for the country.

“At no time did we discuss the issue of replacement. That is the least of my worries.

If indeed Mallam wants to nominate a replacement, I will never oppose his choice. We are on the same page. Those who know us very well know that this is all lies. We know where the disinformation is coming from but we are not bothered.”
